Though the most recent denizen of Elmwood Cemetery was laid beneath the earth in 1959, the resting place of some of Becker County's most prominent pioneers appears well cared for.


Nearly 125 years since it was first deeded over to the Elmwood Cemetery Association of Lake Eunice by M.S. Converse, in 1882, its lawns are well manicured, its trees trimmed, gravestones neatly arranged.
